News Archive - 2008: 4th Qtr

Announcement (24/12/08)

Seasons Greetings! It's Christmas Eve and we at Star Ocean Universe would like to wish you a safe and enjoyable Christmas break. Also, as you may or may not have noticed both the forum and main site have new banners to celebrate the holiday period. Thanks to Quark who made both new banners.

But that is not the only reason for the announcement, the Japanese Star Ocean 4 official site has been updated again, but not just that it's been completely overhauled. It's much...larger, it would better suit one with a larger monitor, but it's still fairly easy to navigate without one. If need by copy the URL into your browser so you have your navigation tools available. The layout has been changed to look like a spaceship's interface and there have been animations added in the transition between pages. 

The new sections include:
  • Revelation of the seventh character Crowe, previously seen in recent promotional movies.
  • More information on the New Battle System & Real Time Member Change.
  • Special section updated now with two promotional movies available.
  • There are four tracks you can have as your background music
Discuss Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope in the forum.
